These interplay events are usually played in match play mode . Which helps a somewhat imbalanced match up in that the match could go either way . And they don't count for anything . Maybe a little pride .
. Again it is all for fun . If your not saturated . Close your eyes . Lol .
In these interplay events . Whatever the format is . Match or stroke , ? . The 2 opponents can see who they are on the roster above .
The 2 of them are responsible for doing what it takes to friend one another . Message each other .
Discuss each others availability .
Agree on a date and time to play at least one of the 2 matches they will be playing during the event .
Do their best to show up and play that first match .
Often times this does not happen .
That just means you have to do what it takes to have another discussion and agree on a new time to play the first match .
Play the match . Report the scores .
The above is the long way . And just describes the possible procedure .
Sometimes the first time you see each other green . BAM You're playing .
Set up a time for a second match .
I love the 2 round format . As opposed to 1 round . 1 round can be such a flash in the pan . 1 and done . Very impersonal . Almost not worth the time .
2 rounds ensures that these 2 lovers of the game . Have to actually interact and discuss and strategize their precious schedules . To set up and play 2 whole 9 hole rounds over a 2 week period at least .
Like I said sometimes it just happens . But it usually takes some good extra effort . to get through these events
If and when that all happens . It is usually incredibly satisfying , fun , worthwhile . And you have a new friend for multi player matches . Probably a couple few others from his or her CC too .
